Level 1 Workshops
Workshop practices will prepare you for level 1 skills testing and cannot be joined mid-session. Each workshop will consist of 6 – 2 hour practice sessions followed by a level 1 basic skating skills assessment. Upon completion of the workshop and skills testing, skaters will be invited to join ILWR’s freshmeat program; where you will be prepared for level 2 contact skills assessments. From here skaters will officially join league activities and will be an active member of ILWR!

Freshmeat practices are held on Sunday and Tuesday evenings.
